My First Recipe Post

Many of you may not know it, but I really love cooking.  I love putting in the time and effort into a meal, especially when someone else is there to enjoy it!  This summer I've been all about salads.  It's a great start to a meal and an even better way to get your veggie servings in.  One thing I NEVER use: store bought salad dressing.  Not only do I find the taste gross, making your own is actually pretty easy.  So here is my absolute favorite salad dressing recipe.

These are the ingredients you will need:
-Extra virgin olive oil
-Red wine vinegar
-Fresh black cracked pepper
-Oregano (fresh or dried)

Okay, so I never actually measure the ingredients but I usually gauge it by using a small tupperware container.  I almost always cook for two so I'll only use about one eighth of a cup of olive oil and a splash or two of red wine vinegar.  Here is what mine looks like:

I then add the oregano and black pepper.  If I had to measure I'd say it would be a fourth of a teaspoon of each.  I like to use a lot of pepper because it really adds flavor to the salad.

Then all you need to do is cover it with your tupperware top (make sure it's on tight) and shake it up!  You can add it to your salad right away or chill it for a bit if you have time.

I can guarantee you that this dressing is better than anything you have in your fridge right now.  If you have any questions or need any ideas for fun salads just let me know :)
